We're also doing lots of gigs (as usual) with our good friend 'Ed Tudor-Pole', starting off with the Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms January 24th, Hereford 28th Feb, & Birmingham Roadhouse 1st March, these are always memorable gigs, so look out for them & hope you can join us for the fun they always are.

Just a note to all our 'Friends' in the U.S, if any of you are considering the 'Sid & Nancy' look for Halloween again this year, keep in mind deliveries from the u.k to u.s can be anything from 5 to 20+ days, so we'd advise getting orders in this week, & we'll mail out same day usually.

This week, Sat 7th, the band make a return to Cardiff Bogiez (formally the Barfly) there's a £10adv tkt link if your coming ,should save you enough on the door price to buy a beer on us.!
"The 100 club Dvd from 8yrs ago has reared its ugly head again on various on-line outlets, with yet another re-worked cover featuring our long dead ex-frontman & without even mentioning its the (old)'Experience', however its the same shit film, poor quality, poor sound & picture, - its Nothing to do with us, PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY its utter shite. For further info see:- http://www.sexpistolsexperience.co.uk/100clubdvd.html "
"I never thought tribute bands were worth much consideration, but, the Sex Pistols Experience changed all that for me - absolutely blown away. See it to believe it. And deserving of the accolade of any true fans presence.
I fucking love this band. Seen them a few times and NO ONE, in any tribute, carries it off as perfectly in music & stage presence. They are more like the Pistols than the Pistols are!!.. exactly what you want as a fan when you go & see them, which you all should.
Another New T-Shirt for 2013,
The 'Sex Pistols Experience' are pleased to announce the return to probably our favourite venue in the World.! On Saturday 8th March 2014 we hit the World famous 100 club, Oxford Street, London, & who better to invite as our special guests - coming all the way from Scotland - 'Lizzy & The Banshees' who blew the crowds away at recent gigs with us. Performing the 100 Club is a lifelong dream come true for them so we're glad to make their dream a reality, & we're sure you'll not want to miss them either.
Festival season hits full swing next for the Sex Pistols Experience with the Peterborough Scooter Rally on Fri 9th August (see poster), & then up to Sheffield Don Valley Bowl for the United Colours Music Fest' on Saturday 10th (see poster). Sunday 11th Aug' we'll nip up to Blackpool to catch-up with the nations Punks at the annual 'Rebellion Festival', where on the afternoon of the 11th you can catch the band in the Tache' (above the 'Rose & Crown', corporation St) from 2pm til 6pm, we can get 350 into the venue & it almost sold out last time, so if your attending Rebellion & want to catch the SPE when there's nothing else going on in the main halls, we strongly advise you to pick-up an advance ticket from the venue during your weekend.
Miss it Miss Out !! NOT BAD FOR A SCORE !
Friday 12th July we make a return to one of our favourite small venues The 'Hark to Towler' up in Tottington just outside of Bury, Lancashire, the reason we mention it is because after a recent sell-out concert in nearby Accrington we caught word that people are heading over from all over to come ot the Towler, & there's no advance tickets, so we suggest you get there early to make sure you get in.
Sat 8th June - Civic Hall Shildon Co' Durham
A Big thanks to the old Punks of Wolverhampton for a great night in the Slade rooms (the venue is right opposite the old Pistols haunt the Lafayette club) we'll be back there again next year, but before that the band will be back in the area at the Robin2 Bilston on 26th October with special guest Ed Tudor-Pole, tickets for that show are on sale now. http://www.therobin.co.uk & check our dates pages for more info..
Over the Summer 2013 we have a number of festivals coming up, we always look forward to the festival season & hope to see some of you out & about at them, so make your way over to whichever stage we're on & say hello.!
An interesting insight/review/opinion live from the Bristol Fleece in April:-
"...this experience really has an uncanny resemblance to the snarling,
Classic British band 'The Godfathers' (hugely influenced by the Pistols/Clash/Heartbreakers & many others) have a new album out 'Jukebox Fury' on which Sex Pistols Experience drummer Crook'y played, & he will be out on tour with them from February onward (as mentioned below) - With new single 'I Can't sleep tonight' out on download from February 12th, & 'Jukebox Fury' the album out Worldwide from March 4th.. The Sex Pistols Experience will be back out for further dates from April.
The recent Severe weather, & poor forecast for Wimbledon this weekend has caused a lack of adv tickets so the promoters have decided to postpone this Saturday's (26th Jan) gig at Kingsmeadow Stadium. A rearranged date will be added soon.
Jah Wobble & Keith Levene with special guests including our very own 'Johnny Rotter' have their new album out now ' Ying & Yang' which has been picking up some very healthy reviews. Get it here through Amazon or any other on-line stores..
